CLICK HERE FOR OUR 3 STEP EZ SADDLE RECOMMENDER

We've developed the tool to help take the mystique out of finding the right western saddle for your horse.

We all know that there is no industry standard for tree sizes. One manufacturer may classify their tree as a normal tree, but that same tree may be classified by another manufacturer as a wide tree. We at Horse Saddle Shop are tired of this non-standard standard and have come up with the perfect tool to measure your horse and we can use it against our reservoir of saddle tree dimension database.

You simply find the corresponding code using this shoulder measuring tool and call or email our saddle experts with the code/s that best match your horse's shoulders. We then take that information and help come up with a list of saddles that falls within that range.

Most measuring tools only show the gullet angle. This is about 80% of the goal in finding the right saddle tree. When you add in the width of the gullet, you get a much truer picture of what saddle would best fit your horse. Our tool measures both the angle and the width giving us a much clearer picture of what tree would truly fit your horse.

We've kept the price low because we want you to have a saddle that fits! Take the mystery out of saddle fitting and get a true measurement of your horse.

We've been successfully fitting saddles remotely for over 19 years (over 35,000 sold), via our internet help/saddle expert pages and this EZ tool is a perfect addition to our ever growing bag of tools to help you. Once you get your tool and find which code or codes from the EZ Saddle Fit Tool aligns with your horse's shoulders, we have several options for you to start finding that saddle that fits:
  • You simply email our saddle support staff at support@HorseSaddleShop.com (or respond to this email) with your EZ Fit code/s, seat size, type of saddle and price range and we'll dig right in to guide you through the saddle fit process

  • If your are a DIY type person, go to Saddle Selection Page where you can enter your code and then see all the saddles

  • Go to Saddle Expert Form and fill out our easy questionnaire that asks questions about your horse, you and what you are looking for in a saddle. We'll then have a better picture of helping you and will be back with a reply in a very short period of time.

  • Call us at our toll free number 1-866-880-2121 - we're very pleasant to talk with.

  • You can initiate an online Chat session by clicking here We're available at normal working hours with a smile on our faces (trust me).

**** Important ***** This tool should be used to find maximum contact with the lower bars and the location on your horse for saddle fit.

EZ fit tool I bought this to use on a hard to fit gaited horse. Its inexpensive, made if plastic. Right away the plastic screws that hold the bar angles fell out and 1 was lost. I replaced those with metal screws that fit tighter. I took the measurements and then plugged them into the website. It showed me what saddles would fit my horse, ut not why. For example, I have a wide backed MFT mare, I measured her as B3. I plugged that in and it took me to a Tucker saddle, but that saddle had 4 sizes, medium, wide, xtrawide etc. It didn't say which tree was the one for me, at least not that I could tell. I called and talked with a a gal, Katy, I think. She spent a alot of time on the phone with me, making sure I measured correctly, looked at pics I emailed her if the horses back as well, and recommended a saddle that should fit the mare. I was really impressed with the time and effort she took to help. The saddle is backorder, so I still haven't received it, but if it doesn't fit when it arrives, they will keep working with me til we find one that works.
Pros:Gives me a place to start when looking for an online saddle.
Cons:Plastic screws fall out easily, their should be a legend/size chart to let me know what tree to look for based on the measurement I got

Questionable usefulness I found that either the device or the directions are useless. After fiddling with it for some time with my incredibly patient horse, including sending pix to the HorseSaddleShop, I was finally told that the measuring bar across the top didnt matter. This was after I was trying to make sure my horses high withers were taken into account.
Before you go through the trouble of using it, be sure to talk to one of their knowledgeable salespeople.
Also, even though the device isnt so expensive, the shipping was another $5.00+.
Pros:None
Cons:None

Saddle fit tool During the initial measurement I dropped the plastic tool and it broke at the hinge. It could not be fixed. Suggestion to create a wristlet connected to a string to prevent it from dropping or change design to metal with sliding sides that lock the measurement in place yet can unlock manually\. The latter would be a more expensive tool. A score of 2 because it arrived swiftly had directions and deoes what it's supposed to do. I don't recommend until the problem is fixed or instructions warn of breaking possible when dropped.
Pros:It does what it's supposed to
Cons:It breaks easily and can't be fixed

Great product and company I used the Saddle Fit tool when I bought a new horse and had to get a wider gullet. The tool was very easy to use, I now have a saddle that fits him very well.
Additionally, I have bought two saddles through Horse Saddle Shop now, and traded one in. The selection and customer service have been excellent every transaction. Very responsive and knowledgable staff, who answered every question I had by phone or email. Trading in a saddle was fair and easy-a great alternative to finding a buyer on social media. I now have a custom Martin saddle that fits my horse and I extremely well. I will definitely use this company again.

Accurate measuring tool I was skeptical when I first tried using this tool. A nice thing about it is you can try different combinations which helps you see how your horse is built. The measurement I took was the same as the tracing with the flexible tool.
Pros:Easy to use' accurate
Cons:None

You're right Kelly. We have added "western" to distinguish the saddle type and have given you a full refund.

With this tool, and sending confirmation photos to Josh-who was extremely helpful, the saddle I purchased for him fits amazingly well! I am very happy!!
